About the Book
In celebration of the NC Dance Festival's 30th Anniversary, photographer Zoe Litaker created 30 portraits documenting dance artists across North Carolina. Each artist pictured has been instrumental in establishing, defining, and evolving the Festival over the years. Representing three decades of dance, these portraits showcase the incredible creative spirit that thrives throughout the state. From dancers in front of the sun rising over the ocean shore to artists moving through Appalachia's stunning mountains, these images combine the power of dance and portraiture with the landscapes of North Carolina to create a powerful series honoring the spirit of the Festival.
